What Level Should I Purchase?
The Document Conversion Service license level you choose controls the number of documents you can convert concurrently (at the same time).
Starting with a single document at a time with Entry Level and going up to ten (10) concurrent documents with Level V, a wide range of license levels exist to meet your conversion needs and match it to the resources (computers) you have available.
The number of CPU/Cores available to you on your system also is a deciding factor in which license level you need to purchase. For optimal performance, a good rule of thumb is to have the same number of CPUs/Cores, or more, as the number of documents you wish to process in parallel.
Items to consider when determining the correct level:
- The total number of documents you want to convert daily.
- The type and size (in pages) of your documents will affect the time it takes per document.
- The specifications of the computer – CPUs/Cores and RAM.
Keep in mind that Document Conversion Service runs 24/7, so if documents are not time-critical and conversion only occurs during business hours, the service can catch up during off hours.
How Many Licenses Are Required?
Each computer (physical or virtual) requires a license to run Document Conversion Service.
One computer with enough CPUs and/or cores could run a Level V (10 documents), however this may not be realistic and instead maybe a combination of Level II (6 documents) in a clustered conversion approach spread over two (2) computers is a better choice. In this case, two (2) licenses of Level II would be required.
Please don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss and determine the level and number of licenses.
